XPoNential Music Festival 2010 Artist

Birdie Busch

Birdie BuschPhilly sweetheart Birdie Busch is undoubtedly one of the area's most promising female artists. Birdie's music hardly fits into a specific category or genre. Her atmospheric folk has strains of country-blues, and rockability. She sings about magic, luck, the universe, and the human heart speeding off on dangerous missions. Birdie has had a long-time partnership with her bandmates, and will be here this Friday, playing XPN's Free At Noon. Now on her third album, Everyone Will Take You In, Birdie Busch has shared the stage with Regina Spektor, Dar Williams and Amos Lee. Birdie joins other local and talented Philadelphia musicians, like Devin Greenwood, Todd Erk, Chris Giraldi, Ross Bellenoit, and Craig Hendrix in the making of great music. Her newest release, Everyone Will Take You In, is a group of songs inspired by her hometown. The project is the first release for the new label Be Frank Records, a Philadelphia label specializing in vinyl releases and digital availabilities. she released her debut LP, The Ways We Try, in 2006 to critical acclaim from Village Voice, CMJ, and VH1 among others. Her early success was carried further by 2007’s Penny Arcade, a musical manifesto for Busch that showcased her mastery of upbeat arrangements and honest lyrical style. Now firmly established as an XPN Local favorite, the Americana songstress released her latest, Pattern of Saturn, in 2009.
